The Margaret S. Glauber Faculty-Student Research Fellows and Scholarship Fund

The Glauber Fellowship is intended to support faculty-student research collaboration in the humanities and social sciences, and enhance the quality of our students’ undergraduate education by giving them the opportunity to engage in serious research under the supervision of faculty mentors.  The program is made possible through the generosity of the late Margaret "Maggie" Glauber '51.

The Glauber Faculty Fellow is a W&M faculty member appointed for two years and receiving a $5,000 stipend per year. Each year, the Faculty Fellow selects two Glauber Student Fellows from the applicant pool, who receive $4,000 for their summer research projects and, when eligible, need-based student financial aid.

We are no longer accepting applications for the Glauber Faculty Fellow.  The next application cycle will open in Fall 2025.  In the meantime, please contact [[charlescenter]] for more information about this program.

Eligibility: Tenured and tenure-eligible faculty in the humanities and social sciences. Faculty should have an excellent record as teachers and scholars, and a commitment to including undergraduates in their research. Because the fellowship includes student stipends and supervision of student fellows, eligible faculty must have a presence on campus during the 2-year term 2024-25 and 2025-26.

Fellowship provisions include:

  • The faculty fellow will receive $5,000 per year, which may be taken as either summer salary or research funds. This fellowship may be held in combination with another award or professorship.
  • Stipends of $4,000 for each of two undergraduate student fellows, in each of the two summers of the faculty fellowship. Student Fellows will be required to dedicate 10 weeks to full-time summer research. The faculty fellow will work with the Charles Center to coordinate the student fellow program.

Faculty Application: To apply, please submit a CV and 2-page letter of application. The application must include:

  • a description of the research project that will be funded by the Fellowship
  • a summary of the applicant’s commitment to incorporating students in their research
  • a summary of the specific role that Student Fellows will have in the proposed research project. It is expected that students will be brought into the research as true collaborators and not just as assistants to perform basic tasks. Proposals with an interdisciplinary approach to research are encouraged.

We are no longer accepting applications for the Glauber Faculty Fellow.  The next application cycle will open in Fall 2025.  In the meantime, please contact [[charlescenter]] for more information about this program.

He has a PhD in Applied Experimental Psychology from Old Dominion University. His research interests focus on identifying who is most susceptible to the development of substance use and mental health disorders, under what conditions individuals engage in health risk behaviors that lead to poor mental health outcomes and problematic substance use, and what factors may decouple (specifically mindfulness) the relation between health risk factors and health outcomes across distinct populations (i.e., college students, clinical populations, and military personnel). He is the Founder and Principal Investigator of the Cross-Cultural Addiction Study Team (CAST), a collective of international scientists (18 investigators across 7 countries) in the behavioral sciences with a shared vision of answering meaningful research questions regarding addictive behaviors (predominately substance use) that have important global policy, prevention, and/or treatment implications.
